Fall 2016 Championship Preview – Woodchucks vs. Shockers

Championship Showdown

By Sean Dochney

1st seed Woodchucks (7-1) vs. 2nd Seed Shockers (7-1)

For the second season in a row the Woodchucks and Shockers will square off in the JSGFFL Championship.  During the summer season, the Woodchucks walked away the champs as they handed the Shockers their first loss in 2 years.  This season, thanks to a Week 7 blowout, the Woodchucks are coming in as the number 1 and defending champs.

The Woodchucks made it into the championship game by beating the Clam Slammer 28-13 in the semi-finals.  The Zit brought his “A” game as he threw for 276 yards and 4 TDs.  The D’Addario cousins were his top targets as Chris had 6 catches for 86 yards and Anthony had 7 catches for 63 yards and a TD.  Billy Belford also scored 2 TDs on his way to 57 yards receiving.  

During the regular season, The Woodchucks had the second ranked offense averaging 321.38 yards per game, and were tied for the league lead in interception difference at +8.  This was largely thanks to the brilliant season the Zit had at quarterback.  The Zit had the highest QB rating in the league and was tied for the most TDs with a 131.96 rating and 44 TDs.  Billy Belford and Chris D’Addario was the Zit’s 2 favorite receivers during the regular season.  Billy had 37 catches for 558 yards and 11 TDs, which ranked him 3rd on the JSGFFL WR Leaderboard.  Chris ranked 6th on the leaderboard with his 33 catches for 538 yards and 8 TDs.  

The Shockers beat the Warewolves 34-14 on their way to the championship game.  The Guffslinger torched the Warewolves D for 303 yards 5 TDs and no interceptions.  Charlie Barbiere was the leading receiver with 6 catches for 88 yards and 2 TDs.  Devon Snead and Ryan Pharo also had big games with Pharo having 6 catches for 73 yards and Snead 4 catches for 71 yards and 2 TDs.  

The Shockers had the topped ranked offense during the regular season with 338.13 yards per game.  The Guffslinger did not protect the ball as well as the Zit did, and the Shockers ranked in the middle of the league in interception differential at +3.  The Shockers do possess a dynamic pass rush that saw them have a league lead 28 sacks as a team.  Steve Soletto’s 18.5 sacks were more than entire teams had over the season.  Danny Erickson was second in the league in sacks behind Soletto with 8.5 during the regular season.  

This is going to be a tough fought game for both teams as they were both clearly the 2 best teams all season.  The Shockers won the last meeting 46-35 in Week 1, but the Woodchucks won their last championship battle.  Both teams have the most dynamic offenses in the league and we should have a great game on Saturday.

24 Hour Countdown – Playoff Preview – Fall 2016

Playoff Preview

By Sean Dochney


9 AM – Clam Slammers 6-2 (4th Seed) vs. Gladiators 5-3 (5th seed)

The Clam Slammers take on the Gladiators in the 2nd game of the first round on Saturday.  The two teams previously played each other in Week 4, and the Gladiators won that contest 28-18.  Both teams have come a long way since that first meeting, and both played the Shockers in the final week of the season.  The Gladiators lost the tough battle to the Shockers 24-28, which was the Gladiators first loss since Week 2.  The Clam Slammers wound up beating the Shockers in their second game of the Shockers double header, 36-32, giving the Shockers their first regular season loss in years.

The Clam Slammers have the lowest ranked offense out of all the playoff teams.  They rank 7th in the league in average yards per game at 239.5.  This is almost a 40-yard difference between the Gladiators, who rank 6th at 278.5.  The Clam Slammers do have a great defense that have carried them this far, and helped the Clam Slammers to be tied for the league lead in interception differential at +8.  Frank Ritacco of the Clam Slammers led the league in interceptions with 7.  Kenny Colicchio also pitched in another 4 interception for the defense that would have 15 as a team during the season.

On offense, Kenny Colicchio was their biggest play maker on the Clam Slammers with his 23 catches for 491 yards and 8 TDs.  Brandon Frustieri also had a nice year moving the chains for the Slammers with his 26 catches for 347 yards and 6 TDs.  QB Brian Lee did not put up sexy numbers, but he was efficient and protected the ball on the way to throwing for 1698 yards, 26 TDs, and 7 interceptions.

The Gladiators offense is much more dynamic than the opposing Clam Slammers.  Terron Maples had a phenomenal year in his first at QB.  He had the 4th highest QB rating in the league at 122.22 on his way to throwing for 2157 yards, 33 TDs, and 7 interceptions.  He also picked up 226 yards and 4 TDs on pitches back to him after throwing the ball.  Terron also led the Gladiators in both sacks and interceptions with his 2 sacks and 3 interceptions.  Terron has a couple of playmakers at his disposal at WR.  Kenny Bass (28 rec. 358 yards 4 TDs), Paul Wickwire (31 rec. 321 yards, 3 TDs), and Kyle D’Autorio (20 rec. 331 yards, 8 TDs) all put up solid numbers for the Gladiators.

This will be another tough game for both teams in the first round.  Clam Slammers have a better defense, but the Gladiators have the better and much more explosive offense.  The Clam Slammers have only beat one team in the regular season with a record over .500, it just so happened to be the team no one else could beat in the regular season, the Shockers.  This game will come down to the Clam Slammers ability to slow down the Terron Maples led offense of the Gladiators, which will not be easy to do.


10 AM – Warewolves 6-2 (3rd seed) vs. Rabid Squirrels 4-4 (6th seed)

The Warewolves take on the Rabid Squirrels to kick off the playoffs for the Fall 2016 season.  This will be a tough battle just like the first time these teams squared off back in Week 5.  The Warewolves walked away the winners in Week 5 in the 27-24 battle.  The Warewolves won this game with The Commissioner out and Ryan Dooley at QB.  The Commissioner will be back for the playoffs, but the Warewolves may be missing star player Shane Capone, who is questionable to play in the playoffs because of injury.  

The Rabid Squirrels had themselves a solid season.  They are tied for first in the league with the Warewolves, Woodchucks, and Clam Slammers in interception difference at +8.  As a team, they averaged the 4th most yards per game with 279.75 yards.  QB Sean Collins had himself a great year that saw him have the 3rd highest QB Rating in the league at 123.87.  Sean completed 65.9% of his passes, for 2230 yards, 29 TDs, and 6 interceptions on the season.  Mike Lawrence (21 rec. 550 yards, 8 TDs), Joe Andress (32 rec. 329 yards, 5 TDs) and newcomer Andre Snead (25 rec. 389 yards, 6 TDs) were the top receivers for Sean and the Squirrels.  Lawrence’s stats were good enough to rank him 9th on the WR leaderboard.  

The Squirrels have a solid defense that forced 14 interceptions this season.  Bill Budd had himself a great season on defense as he leads the team in sacks with 4 and chipped in 4 interceptions.  Phil Cupo was 2nd in the league with 5 interceptions, and Jihad Castro also had 3, including 2 that were returned for a TD.  

The Warewolves always seem to be in contention for a JSGFFL title, but the Commissioner is much like his idol, Tony Romo.  They are both great in the regular season but can’t seem to get it done when it counts in the playoffs.  It is going to be even harder this season if Shane Capone is sidelined and can’t play.  Shane missed a game this season, and still led all WR categories, some by a decent margin.  He had 40 catches for 869 yards and 15 TDs on the season.  

This will be a hard-fought game that will be greatly impacted by how much Capone can play, and how effective he can be when in the game.  Dave Pankow will also be a big x-factor in this game, who just returned to action from a dislocated elbow and gives the Warewolves a legitimate pass rush.  If Shane can play and be effective, I believe the Warewolves will win this one and take on the Shockers in round 2.  If he can’t play, the Rabid Squirrels may be pulling the upset and playing the Woodchucks in the second round. 

 


Woodchucks 7-1 (1st seed)

The Woodchucks will start the defense of their Summer championship with a first round by after securing the number 1 seed in the final week of the regular season.  They did this by blowing out the Assassins by 63 points in Week 7.  The Woodchucks will play the lowest seeded team that advances out of the first round on Saturday.  Having the first-round bye will prove to be huge for the Woodchucks who will be playing their game on fresh legs, while the other team will be playing their second game of the day.

As a team, they had the 2nd most yards per game at 321.38, and were tied for first in interception differential at +8.  John Zitani put up a MVP-type season for the Chucks as he had the highest QB rating in the league at 131.96.  He also led the league with his 71.6% completion percentage and tied for league lead with 44 TDs.  He threw for 2489 yards and did all this while only throwing 6 interceptions.  Billy Belford had a monster season in his return to the Woodchucks.  Billy caught 37 passes for 558 yards and 11 TDs.  Chris D’Addario (33 rec. 538 yards, 8 TDs), Anthony D’Addario (28 rec. 336 yards, 3 TDs), and Steve Dalrymple (26 rec. 322 yards, 10 TDs) all had great years at WR for the Woodchucks as well.  

They have some playmakers on the defensive side of the ball as the Woodchucks had 10 sacks and 14 interceptions as a team.  Their biggest pass rushers are Kevin Kastner (5 sacks), and Jose Ortiz (4 sacks), both players also chipped in 2 interceptions on the season.  Garrett Lavaggi led the Woodchucks in interceptions with 4, 2 of which were returned for TDs.  Nick D’Addario also added 3 interceptions himself.  


Shockers 7-1 (2nd seed)

The Shockers are the other team with a first round bye that will benefit from having fresher legs in their game on Saturday.  They will be looking to reclaim the JSGFFL title as they lost in the Summer championship game to the Woodchucks.  The Shockers have one of the more talented rosters in the league, but have not looked as dominant this season like they have in the past.

They have the top ranked offense in the league that average 338.13 yards per game.  Joe Giuffre threw for the most yards in the league with 2705 passing yards and was tied with the Zit for most TDs at 44.  The Guffslinger had a problem with interceptions this season as he threw 11 in 8 games.  The Shockers received big years at WR from Charlie Barbiere (38 rec. 695 yards, 13 TDs), Devon Snead (40 rec. 715 yards, 7 TDs), and Mike O’Neil (30 rec. 372 yards, 10 TDs).  All 3 ranked in the top 10 for the WR leaderboard this season.  

The Shockers also have one of the best defenses in the league.  They led the league in team sacks with 28, and had 14 interceptions.  Steve Soletto’s 18.5 sacks not only led the league, but was more than every other team had in the regular season.  Danny Erickson was second in the league in sacks with 8.5, which was more than some of the teams around the league had.  Shannon Hill and Devon Snead led the Shockers in interceptions as each had 3, but Shannon returned 2 for TDs.  

The Shockers will play the higher ranked seed out of the first-round winners.  They are favorites to get back to the championship game no matter who they play.  The key to the Shockers success will come down to Giuffre’s ability to limit the turnovers for the playoffs.  If he can do this, the Shockers may be back on top of the JSGFFL.  

Summer 2016 Championship Preview – Shockers vs. Woodchucks

Championship Preview
By Sean Dochney
 


The Shockers (7-0-1) vs. The Woodchucks (6-2)

                The Shockers are on a quest for their 3rd straight JSGFFL championship as well as their 3rd unbeaten season in a row.  The Shockers were able to overcome the Warewolves 27-24 in the semi-final matchup last week even though the Shockers were trailing the entire game only to take a lead in the final 2 minutes.  Devon Snead and the Guffslinger both had big games as the Shockers battled back from the early double digit deficit.  The Shockers will have their hands full this week as they take on the Zit and his Woodchucks.  The Woodchucks were in control for the entire game against the Rabid Squirrels last week as they won 32-12.  The Shockers won the previous matchup against the Woodchucks 39-28 in Week 3.
                This game looks like it may be a battle of the QBs as it boasts the league’s top 2 rated passers and most likely All-Pro 1st and 2nd team QBs.  The Guffslinger was the top rated QB in the league at 137.4.  He threw for 2,817 yards, which was 2nd behind Zitani’s 2,840.  Guiffre and the Zit were tied for the most touchdowns in the league at 45.
                The Shockers have many playmakers outside of the Guffslinger on offense.  They have 4 WR ranked in the top 12 on the JSGFFL leaderboard.  Devon Snead leads the receiving corps as he had 39 receptions for 697 yards and 10 TDs.  Charlie Barbiere (34 rec. 526 yards, 5 TDs), Ryan “King TUTdown” Pharo (28 rec. 382 yards, 8 TDs), and Anthony Spanola (32 rec. 400 yards, 8 TDs) round out the rest of the talented options that the Guffslinger has at his disposal.
                The Woodchucks have some playmakers themselves at receiver.  Led by Jeremy Wozniak (32 rec. 475 yards, 8 TDs), Anthony D’Addario (35 rec. 415 yards, 4 TDs), and Chris D’Addario (25 rec. 346 yards, 7 Tds).  The Woodchucks have also received big games out of Charlie Mackie and Terron Maples when the 2 have been able to attend the games.  They will need both Mackie and Maples to be present for the Championship if they hope to upset the unbeaten Shockers.   
                The Woodchucks defense gave up the least amount of points this season, and will have to come up big in this game for them to walk away as Summer Champs.  The Woodchucks D is up for the challenge led by Devon McEllen who was tied for most interceptions in the league with 4.  Kevin Kastner led the league in sacks with 11, and the Woodchucks defense was 2nd in the league to French Toast Mafia in team sacks. 
                 Overall, this game should be a close and hard fought battle.   The Shockers are definitely the favorites coming into this game, but the game still has to be played, and the Woodchucks are motivated to hand the Shockers their first loss of the past few seasons.  I will take the easy way out and predict the unbeaten Shockers as the winner by a 1 score margin, but I would not be surprised if the Woodchucks emerged as champs this week.

Spring 2016 – Playoff Preview

Spring 2016 – Playoff Preview

By Sean Dochney

 

The JSGFFL Spring 2016 season has come to an end and the playoffs begin this Saturday at 9 am at Shelter Cove in Toms River. Here we will take a look at all 6 of the teams that remain in the hunt for a championship.

 


1st seed – The Shockers (8-0)

1st Round Bye

278 Point Differential. Opponent Record (22-42)

Key Wins: Warewolves (week 2, 42-37), Woodchucks (week 6, 40-18)

The Shockers are undefeated and have the largest point differential in the league at 278. They dominated all year on both offense and defense which led them to an average margin of victory at 34.7. The Shockers had the most interceptions as a team with 27, and the 2 nd most sacks with 24. They were led on defense by the Soletto Brothers who both were 1 st and 2 nd team All-Pro. Steve Soletto led the league in sacks (17), while his brother Bryan led the league in interceptions (7). Dan Calabrease would add 6 picks of his own, and the dual threat Devon Snead would have 5 interceptions himself for the Shockers, ranking them 2 nd and 3 rd in the league.

The offense is led by first team All-Pro QB Joe “Guffslinger” Guiffre and his talented receiving corps that is led by 1 st team All-Pro WR Charlie Barbiere. Charlie may have won a receiving Triple Crown this year, but Devon Snead and Ryan Pharo would each have big years themselves. Snead had 43 catches for 665 yards and 12 touchdowns. Pharo had 41 catches for 520 yards and 8 touchdowns.


2nd Seed – The Blue Jackets (8-0)

1 st Round Bye

225 Point Differential. Opponent Record (20-42- 2)

Key Wins: Strangers with Candy (week 1, 45-12), Warriors (week 3, 46-6)

The Blue Jackets went undefeated in their first season in the JSGFFL and have the second seed because of point differential. They gave up the fewest points in the league with 175 and had the 2nd most interceptions in the league at 16. Steve Bailey led the team in interceptions with 5, while Jack Phair and Anthony Fata would each chip in 3.

The offense is led by 2 nd team All-Pro QB Anthony Fontana. Fontana threw the 2 nd most touchdowns in the league with 45 and the least amount of interceptions with only 4. He has one of the most balanced receiving attacks in the league between Pete Linfante (30 rec-532 yards-13 TDs), Chris Malmstrom (34 rec-528 yards-11 TDs), and Jack Phair (32 rec-550 yards-8 TDs).


3rd Seed – The Warewolves (6-2)

Game at 10 a.m. against the Warriors (4-3- 1)

143 Point Differential. Opponent Record (28-36)

Key Wins: Grizzlies (week 1, 58-14), Woodchucks (week 4, 41-33), Rabid Squirrels (week 5, 42-24)

Key Losses: Shockers (week 2, 37-42), No Lackin’ (week 3, 21-31)

The Warewolves offense is led by the Commissioner, Chris Angelini, who threw 36 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions this past year on his way to the highest single season QB rating in league history with 137.2,. His favorite target was Sean McAndrew, who hauled in 41 catches for 597 yards and 15 touchdowns. Chris McIntosh (391 yards, 6 TDs) and Shane Capone (339 yards, 4 TDs) were the next 2 leading receivers behind McAndrew.

On defense, the Warewolves gave up the 3 rd fewest points in the league with 178. Sean McAndrew led the team in interceptions with 4. Tim Steager and Isreal Rodriguez were the teams primary pass rushers as Steager would end up with 6 sacks and Izzy with 8. The Warewolves gave the undefeated Shockers their biggest fight this year as they only lost by 5. Both teams would need to make the championship game to play each other again this year.


4th seed – Strangers with Candy (5-2- 1)

Game at 9 a.m. against the Woodchucks

61 Point Differential. Opponent Record (26-37- 1)

Key Wins: No Lackin’ (week 2, 34-26), Grizzlies (week 5, 45-22)

Key Losses: Blue Jackets (Week 1, 12-45), Woodchucks (week 7, 12-36)

Strangers with Candy QB Anthony Caputo put up some real big numbers while leading his team to the 4 th seed. Caputo would throw for 2359 yards with 36 TDs and 6 picks. His top target was 2 nd team All-Pro WR Cam Blackwell (35 rec-774 yards-16 TDs). Pat Jensen would also have a big year for the team at WR (), and he also led the team in interceptions with 4.

Strangers with Candy are 0-2- 1 against other playoff teams this past season and are poised to prove their 5-2- 1 record is no fluke. The 9 am Playoff game is a rematch of a week 7 contest in which the Woodchucks won decisively, 36-12. The Woodchucks were playing for a lot more as they needed a victory last time out to secure a playoff spot, while Strangers with Candy had already clinched. Candy also lost their QB Caputo to an injury during the game. Expect a much closer game this week if Caputo is healthy and he has all his weapons at his disposal.


5th seed – The Woodchucks (5-3)

Game at 9 a.m. against Strangers with Candy

54 Point Differential. Opponent Record (34-28- 2)

Key Wins: Grizzlies (week 3, 38-35), Warriors (week 5, 41-26), Strangers with Candy (week 7, 36-12)

Key Loss: Rabid Squirrels (Week 2, 19-40), Warewolves (week 4, 33-41), Shockers (week 6, 18-40)

The Woodchucks are a gritty team that had the toughest schedule of any team that made it to the playoffs. They are led by John “The Zit” Zitani at QB who is a JSGFFL legend as he is the career leader in passing yards and touchdowns. John put up another great season this year, even though his top 2 receivers from years past, Billy Belford and Kyle Spatz, jumped ship to go play for No Lackin’ this season. John had a completion % of 68.7% and threw for 2559 yards, 37 TDs, and 10 picks. His 37 TDs were tied for 3 rd in the league, while his completion % was second to only Chris Angelini. The Zit’s top 2 receivers were Zach Emmett (39 rec-591 yards-5 TDs), and Chris D’Addario (39 rec-452 yards-6 TDs).

The Woodchucks own the best pass rush defense in the JSGFFL as they led the league with 28 sacks this past season. The Woodchucks’ top 3 in sacks this year was Steve Dalrymple (9), Garrett “Loud Mouth” Lavaggi (6), and Justin Izzo (5). The pass rush will be crucial for the Woodchucks to win 2 games on Saturday and advance into the championship game next week.


6th seed – Warriors (4-3)

Game at 10 a.m. against the Warewolves

17 Point Differential. Opponent Record (30-33- 1)

Key Wins: No Lackin’ (week 7, 21-20), Rabid Squirrels (week 7, 29-18)

Tie: Strangers with Candy (week 6, 20-20)

Key Losses: Grizzlies (week 2, 29-37), Blue Jackets (week 3, 6-46), Woodchucks (week 5, 26-41)

The Warriors entered week 7 with a 2-3- 1 record with 2 games to play and needed a lot of helpto get into the playoffs. They would win both their games against 2 teams that still fighting to get into the playoffs at the beginning of the day, No Lackin’ and Rabid Squirrels. The Warriors were able to take the 6 th and final seed of the playoffs away from the 4-4 Rabid Squirrels, a team that started the season 4-4.

Josh Eagel and Dan Altman have been there primary QBs on the season, although Josh Eagel has been getting the majority of the time at QB over the past few games, including the 2 do or die games played in week 7. Eagel threw for 837 yards, 11 TDs and 5 picks in 3 games at QB this year. The Warriors leading receiver with 35 catches for 542 yards and 8 TDs, he also led the team in interceptions with 4.

The Warriors are trying to keep their Cinderella story alive as they get set for a tough game against the Warewolves Saturday morning. If they beat the Warewolves, they will need to beat the Shockers to get into the Championship game next week, which makes the Warriors’ path toughest out of all the playoff teams this Saturday.

Shockers vs. Woodchucks – Championship Preview

JSGFFL Fall 2015 Championship Preview

#1 Seed Shockers (9-0) against #3 Seed Woodchucks (7-2)

11 AM, January 9th

Winding River Park Field, Toms River, New Jersey

The top two seeded teams of the previous season will square off in the Fall Season’s title game this Saturday, as the undefeated Shockers look to complete perfection against the storied Woodchucks, who are trying to build a dynasty of their own. The Shockers cruised through an unbeaten regular season, and then put an absolute whooping on The Untouchables in a laugher, 60-14. While the Woodchucks had a small midseason slump, losing 2 in a row at one point, they’ve won 5 straight and had The Shockers beaten in Week 3, only to see a prayer answered and a miracle granted. Bryan Soletto was rushed into action at QB with time expiring, and threw up a deep pass to the end zone. Jim Florimont went up and snagged the ball, pinning it to his shoulder to win the game as the clock expired. The rematch is this weekend, and while the first matchup was the best game of the regular season, the sequel could be even more of a classic. Are we due for another championship overtime game?

Game Preview

When The Shockers have the ball:

QB Joe Guiffre has the hips of a salsa dancer in the pocket, and the moxie of a proven leader. Whereas last season he was very entrenched in the statistical races, this season he has one thing on his mind: winning football games. The approach has put his team in the title game. His hard count is by far the best in the JSGFFL, as he routinely gets defenders to jump offsides and give up their right to rush the passer. He has no problem dumping the ball down to a short option if it springs open quickly, and his safety valve of Lineman Anthony Spanola was 1st Team All Pro for his receiving and blocking skills. Charlie Barbarie is as good of a wide receiver as anyone in the league and Guff will go deep to him without hesitation. The dual threat Devon Snead is a matchup nightmare for most teams when he gets his offensive snaps, showing top end speed and great run after the catch skills. Will Dan Calabrease get any offensive looks after his Week 7 explosion? The Woodchucks defense boasts an impressive secondary, and a dynamic pass rush. They pulled in 20 interceptions as a team, which is a byproduct of the man to man coverage they play on the outside with CBs Devon McEllen and Chris Jensen. The deep safety look employed by the ‘Chucks could be the answer to Charlie Barbarie over the top, and the defensive line duo of Garrett Lavaggi and Dave Pankow bring relentless energy all game long. They both are athletic enough to rush the passer and cover Shocker lineman Ryan Pharo and Anthony Spanola in the flats, so Joe Guiffre will need to find the holes in the defense and dissect them with precision. If the ‘Chucks blitz, don’t think for one second Joe Guff won’t test these corners one on one down the field to Barbarie. 

When The Woodchucks have the ball:

QB John Zitani had another spectacular season, and is one of if not the greatest JSGFFL passer(s) of all time. His on field skills are only surpassed by his leadership ability and competitive spirit. Sporting the best offensive line duo in the league (the dancing bear that is Chris D’Addario and the non-stop motor of Garrett Lavaggi), this offense routinely pushes the ball down the field on scramble plays. Billy Ballgame aka Billy Belford has become known for his spectacular catches, and Kyle Spatz is arguably the most slippery player with the football in his hands in the entire league. Dave Pankow is a big, athletic target that can block and stretch the seam. Zitani also loves to hit his tall target in the red-zone, James Tranz. He had better bring his scrambling shoes, because The Shockers vaunted pass rush is still ripping through offensive fronts. Lineman Steve Soletto dropped 21 sacks on the league in 8 games, then went on to have a strip sack that he returned for a TD last week in the Semi-Finals. At one point, he lined up in coverage over one of the best WRs in the league, Anthony Carlo. Coming from the other side, on nearly every down, is Dan Erickson. He had 8 sacks, but is just as much of a presence off the edge. Devon Snead, the best two-way player in the league, and Dan Calabrease play man to man on an island on most downs, with Bryan Soletto and Shannon Hill rounding out a playmaking secondary that thrives in man coverage. Whether it’s the rushers forcing the passer to toss up a duck into the ballhawking secondary, or the defensive backs covering everyone until the rushers can get the quarterback’s flag, this defense is downright filthy. 

Below is the complete roster and starting lineups for each team:
